i just googled the song nobody's fault but mine and zep reworked the lyrics,none of the lyrics jerry sang,then again i only have listen to 73 dead nobody's fault,more closely to the way blind melon and earlier blues player sang it,where zep is a rework of the lyrics,both are solid versions.

OK:
Nobody's Fault But Mine

Nobody's fault but mine if I don't read my soul gets lost
Nobody's fault but mine
Had a Bible in my hand, had a Bible in my arm

My mother she taught me how to read
If I don't read my soul gets lost
Nobody's fault but mine, nobody's fault but mine

Zeppelin:

Nobody's fault but mine.

Nobody's fault but mine.

Trying to save my soul in line.

It's nobody's fault but mine.

The rest of theirs aint even close but the point is is that it is obviously based on the same song and the same premise - If you don't beleive that book then you aint " gwine upta heaven" ( Zappa, remember that one? )

Just to muck the water, Beck did a Nobody's Fault which HE wrote. Completely different tune. Not blues

yeah and he did a song called LOSER that isn't the same either. What's up with that? Not to be confused with Cracker's version of LOSER which IS the Hunter/Garcia one and kicks serious ass.

sure!!! that would be great - could care less if it is mp3 - sound is all i care about. Have nothing by Cracker so that would be way cool - always love new music/artists.

but before you send that - what can i do for you my friend?? we need to make things copacetic (sp?) - not that either of us care too much - just makes it more fun :)

Dave Alvin (of The Blasters) does a great version of Loser on his recent release "West of the West". It's an album of covers from California songwriters. It's a great record with a cool doo-wop rendition of Surfer Girl. The Loser is a pretty faithful rendition with a short but ripping solo. Once at a show one of my buddies yellled out "Dark Star!", and Dave's response was "don't tempt us with the Dark Star". Then he and his band did some fairly Dead-like noodling that went right into the next tune.
